Curriculum Associates recently named 35 teachers to the 2022 class of Extraordinary Educators, an annual program that celebrates and connects exemplar teachers from around the country. Chosen from hundreds of nominations and representing 19 states, this year’s class of Grades K–8 educators exhibit best-in-class use of i-Ready, i-Ready Classroom Mathematics, and/or Ready, illustrate growth and achievement via formal assessments, demonstrate innovation and engagement practices for students, are evangelists for high standards and student achievement, and have been teaching for at least two years.
“With almost 500 years of teaching experience combined, this year’s Extraordinary Educators are all innovative and dedicated classroom leaders whose impact does not go unnoticed,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “We commend these educators for their best practices in the classroom day-in and day-out and look forward to supporting them with unique professional learning opportunities to help further support the amazing work they do.”
This year’s class of Extraordinary Educators—composed of seasoned educators and rising stars, including a districtwide Teacher of the Year—will have access to a network of peers from around the country to collaborate, connect, and learn from throughout the year, as well as access to professional development opportunities from Curriculum Associates. They will also be invited to participate and present at the Extraordinary Educators Leadership Summit as well as other professional learning events.
This is the third year of the Extraordinary Educators program. This year’s class joins 75 additional educators from across the country in receiving this recognition.
